Huge haul! HA, I love the start of a new grocery month budget! The last week is always boring and hard for me, so I'm ready to get a bunch of new stuff!

I've been creeping blogs but not really commenting. I just didn't seem to have the time! Now I'm hoping i do. What a terrific grocery shop. I can't get those fire-roasted tomatoes in Canada anymore. Boo!Hiss! I go to Buffalo to stock up.
